The Gardens at Nymans, which are operated by the National Trust, are almost too-well-loved by the Coachloads of visitors who descend daily. The Visitors' Center, Gift Shop, and Tea Room---which serve as one's introduction for a visit to Nymans---are UN-charming and institutional in atmosphere. BUT, when you stroll away from the mob-scene, and enter the gardens themselves, peace and quiet... More

There is a house, though it is fairly limited as much of the original mansion was destroyed by fire. The main thing is the beautiful gardens, not as extensive as Wakehurst Place nearby, but with their own special features. My favourite is the walled gardens in summer, which are an absolute riot of colour. There is a good cafė and... More

Nymans is a great place. I love the gardens, the woods, the house and the history of it! The only downside is the "tea room" or should I say cantine? ...no ambience whatsoever, hot beverages are served in paper cups and the staff gets really rude once its coming up to closing time. Got literally kicked out last Sunday although... More

Great time had visiting the gardens and walking in the extensive woods. Walking boots recommended at this time of year.

Nymans is a favourite of our family - we love going there. We visited last weekend for my wife's birthday, despite the cold winds and sleet! The food in the recently extended cafe was excellent and very affordable - £6.95 for a pie and roasted vegetables for instance. The gardens are full of interest, even in winter, with an interesting... More

This is a nice place lovely gardens and buildings. The only problem is for dog owners. You can walk the dog but only in the forest bit. They are not allowed in the main part. But you still have to pay to gain access to the wooded area making it quite expensive but well worth a visit if your not... More

Nymans is a well laid out NT garden. The house is not always open and only a few rooms are viewable but well done. There is a good second hand bookshop in the grounds too.mes per year.The shop (friendly staff) and cafe are good but crowded at weekends especially on a nice day. Overall well worth a visit even in... More

We went to Nymans for the 'head' gardener talk and it was very interesting. Gave myself an idea of what to expect from Nymans for the upcoming year. It showed me it is a lovely place for a walk and to enjoy nature. I shall definately be returning late May, early June to see the garden at one of it's... More

The food is good quality, but high in price, shame it's not cheaper as we would go more. If you go in the summer time it is heaving, the best time is Spring or Autumn, the trees look beautiful at this time of the year too.
